A BS in Chemistry also stands out as a premiere accomplishment in applications for professional degree programs, including pharmacy, medicine, nursing, dentistry, medical technology, and many others.
Biochemistry is the chemistry of life—the molecules, reactions, and energy transformations that underlie structure and function in all living organisms. The study of biochemistry combines knowledge from across disciplines to understand how life works at the molecular level.
This certificate program provides students with a knowledge base in biochemistry, the ability to link biochemical principles to solve problems, and extract and construct scientific meaning from critical reading of primary literature.
The minor is beneficial for science majors, pre-professional health science majors, and students seeking science education certification. The objective of the chemistry minor is to provide broad, introductory coursework and laboratory experience in chemistry.
This program allows students to complete an undergraduate degree in chemistry or biochemistry and a graduate degree in chemistry in five years.
The MS program in chemistry provides students the skills and knowledge necessary to conduct specialized research in chemistry and related disciplines.
Through the study of biology, students are introduced to the cornerstones of the discipline, leading to an appreciation for the diversity of life and the processes supporting it.
The minor in biology provides a firm foundation in the diversity of the life sciences. Our students are instilled with a respect and a sense of responsibility for life and the environment, as well as the knowledge to understand ongoing advancements in the field of biology.
The MS in Biology is a research-based program with a goal to provide advanced training in the current concepts, theories, debates, and methods for modern biology from a curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking and communication.
This research-based program provides advanced training in the current concepts, theories, debates, and methods for modern biology from a curriculum that emphasizes critical thinking and communication.
The three major components to this certificate include advanced molecular biology training, directed student research or an internship in a research laboratory, and biochemistry training.
The minor in biophysics enables students with primary interests in biology, chemistry, health sciences, mathematics, anthropology, psychology, or other disciplines to explore the deep connections between fundamental physical processes and the functions and development of life.
